Pretend that North Korea is fucking scary.

The whole thing is kind of mind boggling.

:itsmagic: Don't you dare launch that rocket, North Korea!
:serious: Don't you dare.
:itsmagic: Don't you dare launch it!
:vampire: Launched it.
:itsmagic: FFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-
:serious: So... what happens now?
:itsmagic:
:serious:
:vampire: C'mon, guys.
:serious:
:itsmagic:
:serious: Seriously.  What happens?
:itsmagic: I uh... I don't know.  Does anything happen?  Anything at all?
:vampire: Oh you guys are kidding me.

North Korea announced about four hours after the launch that it had succeeded in putting a satellite into orbit. "The satellite is rotating normally in its orbit," the Korean Central News Agency reported.

I obviously have no intimate knowledge of the intricacies of missile launches, but doesn't it take longer than four hours to get a satellite from the launch pad to a stable orbit?

North Korea doesn't really operate in real-time, or have 24-hour news networks.

I'd be surprised if the "satellite" were anything more that a random chunk of rocket that hasn't fallen out of the sky, yet.

Looks like the rest of the world is calling it a 'failure'.

I don't know why they need quotation marks. The whole thing ended up in the Pacific.

Because they needed quotation marks when they 'launched' the thing in the first place.  You can't get an certain quantum state from an uncertain quantum state, that'd just collapse the whole waveform and then Schroedinger's Rocket would blow up space and time.

From the NK propagandist's viewpoint, the launch was a 'success', and the second satellite will join the first in broadcasting revolutionary patriotic tunes. 

From the NK engineer's perspective, the launch was a 'success' as they were able to get the second stage to work, which is a drastic improvement from the last. 

From the NK leadership's perspective, this was a 'setback', and with luck their engineers will be able to create a rocket that will hit North America next time

From the rest of the world's viewpoint, this was a 'failure'.  The other three viewpoints explain the quotations.

I have to wonder what use the Hermit Kingdom has for a communications satellite when they have no Internet or cell phone services, save for government officials.

the US, EU, Japan and South Korea condemned the launch, thought to be a cover for a long-range missile test.

Here's what I'm wondering:  How much of the food coming in as Aid is coming in from western nations?

yeah, north korea doesn't scare anyone. Like that country full of sand and mountains that's named after a dog breed. Nothing came out of that either.

You guys do know that North Korea has enough artillery pointed at Seoul to level it, right? That's why we pay attention to them even if they're a bit silly.

NK is kind of like a suicide bomb at the international level.

Also: My vote for thread icon is the puppet Kim Jong Il from Team America singing 'So Ronery'.
